|Title||On the Development of Cadastral Information System for Part of Kofare Government Residential Area of Jimeta-Yola in Adamawa State of Nigeria.|
The emergence of the modern technology of Geographic Information System (GIS) has been
viewed by many as the best that has happened to Surveying and Mapping both in theory and
practice in recent times. The cadastre which had been in analogue form is not left behind.
This paper, therefore, has to do with the development of a parcel-based Cadastral Information
System (CIS) of part of Kofare Government Residential Area (GRA) of Jimeta – Yola.
Analogue layout plan and the analogue topographical sheet of the study area were acquired,
scanned, digitized and Georeferenced in Joint Photographic Expert Group (JPEG) format and
imported into AutoCAD 2010 software. Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates
of four points in the area of study were obtained with a Global Positioning System (GPS)
equipment. Parcel, Road and Boundary layers were created in AutoCAD environment. The
Arcview 3.2a software was used to polygonize the parcel theme and converted to shapefile.
Spatial and Attribute database were created and linked through a linkage mechanism with an
identifier number. The database was integrated with some multimedia information. The
system generated the c-of-o with photograph and some vital information of the plot owner.
Queries were generated to evaluate and test the efficiency and showcase the efficacy of the
CIS system. Useful recommendations were made to governments and agencies concerned in
land administration and management to adopt the system and useful suggestions made on
